Cabbage have today unveiled the new video for their current single ‘Kevin’, available now on Infectious Music.
Co-starring cult Manchester busking band The Piccadilly Rats, the video was shot earlier this month in Piccadilly Gardens and directed by Dom Foster.
Premiered on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, ‘Kevin’ is a re-recording of the lead track from their 2016 debut EP ‘Le Chou’. A fan favourite and Cabbage’s live set closer, ‘Kevin’ was produced by James Skelly & Rich Turvey (Blossoms, She Drew The Gun) at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. ‘Kevin’ is the Manchester band’s first stand-alone single after a series of acclaimed EPs, the latest of which, August’s ‘The Extended Play Of Cruelty’, contained the BBC 6Music playlisted track ‘Celebration Of A Disease’.

Cabbage’s new label Infectious Music (Alt-J, Drenge, DMA’s) have re-pressed ‘Young, Dumb And Full Of…’, Cabbage’s debut long-player. Originally released for Record Store Day – and selling out immediately – Young, Dumb And Full Of…” compiles the Manchester band’s three four-track EP’s released in late 2016: ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ (whose title track was playlisted by BBC 6Music), ‘Necroflat In The Palace’ and ‘Terrorist Synthesizer’.
